THE country’s growth lies in the stability of families, Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi has told the people of Rukungiri.

Mbabazi added that unstable families were an obstacle to a country’s development.

He made the remarks on Sunday during a thanksgiving service of his parents-in-law, the Rev. Can. Geresimu Ruhindi and Mrs. Evelina Ruhindi, at St Paul’s Church of Uganda, Nyakisorooza in Rubabo county, Rukungiri district.

The Rev. Can. Ruhindi is 97-years-old, while his wife is 87-years-old. The couple had 11 children, two of whom have since passed on.

Those alive include Can. Jacqueline Mbabazi, the wife of the Prime Minister and also the chairperson of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Women’s League. Former agriculture minister Hope Mwesigye is also a daughter.

Mbabazi commended the Ruhindis for educating their children. He emphasised the importance of thanking by word of mouth and deeds.

Mbabazi donated sh1.7m for doors and windows for the church. He pledged to foot the bills for procuring tiles, cement, attendant items and labour costs for finishing its floor.

Mbabazi also gave a heifer to the Ruhindis, wishing them good health and longer life.

The bishop of Kinkizi Diocese, Rt. Rev. Dan Zooreka, who led the service, urged Christians to reflect on what God had done for them and praise Him. He thanked God for guiding the Ruhindis.

The area MP, Paula Turyahikayo, urged parents to educate their children, if the country was to develop.

Later, the Ruhindis hosted their guests to a dinner at their home, during which Mbabazi thanked the people of Rukungiri for supporting the NRM.
